5 Steps to a Successful Retirement Community Move
1. Get ExcitedThis should be an exciting chapter in your life! It will feel scary to think about leaving a home that you may have lived in for decades. Imagine how much a new family will enjoy it as much as you did. The good news is that you will still have your belongings and precious mementos wherever you call home.
2. ask for helpThere’s no shame in asking family or friends to help you pack for your move. If possible, hire an organizer who specializes in these type of moves. They may have resources for disposing of items, donating or selling. Get measurements of your new place so you know what to bring.
3. Downsize your Way
4. Get Settled
Unpacking your boxes will feel overwhelming. Tackle the important areas first like the bedroom and bathroom to give you comfort on your first night. Next, set up your living room to give you that cozy feeling you’ve always had. When you are ready, maintenance can hang up your picture frames and artwork. You will have your kitchen set up in no time with everything you need without too many spatulas!
